Nicolson Digital Ltd is both an Ordnance Survey Licensed Partner and an Ordnance Survey Mapping and Data Centre, providing large scale maps for both public and businesses from our cartographic workshop in Largs.

Mapping for Business or Planning Application

If you are planning a home extension or carrying out a small building project, you will probably need to apply for planning permission from your local authority. Using the most up to date Ordnance Survey data we are able to supply mapping suitable for almost any planning related matter. We can supply properly licensed Ordnance Survey mapping in both paper and electronic formats.

To comply with OS Licencing we need some basic information from you before you can access the most detailed mapping. This information is not used for marketing of any kind.

Street Mapping

Our street maps are available as either a fold out paper map or as a street atlas. The ‘wee blue’ Street Guide range covers most towns and villages in Scotland. We are planning an extensive programme of updates, revisions & new products over the next few years.

Since 2016 we have released new mapping for Aberdeen, Ayrshire, Carlisle, Dumfries & Galloway, East Kilbride, Fife, Glasgow & Stirling.
Plenty more including Moray & Speyside are due soon.
